“The 2009 Vina Borgia is 100% Garnacha fermented and aged in stainless steel. Purple-colored with a fragrant, fruity nose of fresh-picked cherries, on the palate it is ripe and savory with no hard edges in the finish. Drink it over the next 2 years. Bodegas Borsao has long been known for high quality value-priced wines and the current releases are no exception.” —Wine Advocate
Brought to us by our friend Jorge Ordonez, a several time recipient of Robert Parker’s “Wine Personality of the Year” and a true revolutionary that nearly single-handedly modernized the Spanish wine industry. Jorge and his Fine Estates from Spain is considered one of the most influential wine personalities in America. This is because of his commitment to finding the finest small bodegas in Spain, helping them to perfect their wines and introducing them here in the U.S., often to rave reviews.
Did you know that Jorge Ordonez, his portfolio and Spain:
has the highest elevation in Europe next to Switzerland?
has the oldest average vine age in Europe (30 – 40 years) vs. California (5 – 7 years)?
has a general policy of non-irrigation (which stresses the vines into producing ever finer wines)?
has had a revolution in winemaking, with younger generation of winemakers taking over, much like in Bordeaux with new willingness to experiment with vine varieties, including the “internationals” to match the varied soils and microclimates of western Europe’s second largest country?
has invested heavily for cool temperature, hygienic and controlled fermentations with stainless steel and or investmented in American oak and current technology insists on bottling without fining or filtration resulting in stripped, sterile, mass-produced wines and on shipping in proper refrigerated containers, where their standards are unmatched?
